Default Obama is giving Alaskian Islands to Russia

Anybody else hear this? Probably not. I found this and it also includes oil rich land to the Russians.
I had better check out snoopes.com I'm sure it's all fake

Not fake, but not new and not Obama's doing.

Quote:
Author’s addendum, Feb. 17, 2012: This is not a new issue. In fact the Bush and Clinton administrations are directly at fault for the same inaction. A maritime agreement negotiated by the U.S. State Department set the Russian boundary on the other side of the disputed islands, but no treaty has ratified this action. Consequently, it is within the president’s power to stop this giveaway. The Alaska delegation’s failure to put pressure on the administration is inexplicable. State Department Watch, an organization that assisted with this article, has confronted each administration and is currently confronting the Obama administration — and has been met by silence. I’m hoping this piece will help reinvigorate efforts to stop this handover.

So I guess the question is why has no sitting president or state head ever done something about it? And what is stopping the russians from grabbing the land in dispute?
You would think that Obama might do something in an election year to bring up his numbers. Just saying

Politics. That's why. I'm guessing to take direct action on this issue, either side, could and probably would have some nasty repercussions.

Crack pot theory - There is some kind of Super secret US government project involving 1> something Nuclear or 2> some kind of super human development sight gone horribly wrong and the only way to fix it is to desolate the whole set of islands. Or both. <puts extra layer of tin foil on>

I could be crazy but it appears that these islands are pretty clearly in russian waters. I don't know how the boundry lines run but at least wrangel island (the biggest one "in dispute") lies right off the coast of russia. Also, I know wikipedia isn't a great source but it says that it was first discovered in 1764 by a russian, is managed by the russians and has russian park rangers and scientists inhabiting it. I think it belongs to the russians...

No, they are in enough trouble as it is. Some one is trying to make another TMNT movie that changes the story line to them being aliens instead of Mutant Turtles. Seems kind of stupid to me. Teenage Ninja Alien creatures? :facepalm:
